Just the Tip – Marking Your Lie

Just the Tip Header Image

The mini marker.  It’s something you are required to have when playing tournaments.  But did you know you are rarely required to actually use it?  For most shots, you are allowed to throw from behind the disc you just threw. In most cases, this is an advantage.  The rules state that your front foot is … Read more

Road to the 2015 GBO – 140 Days to Go

  Almost two months ago, I reserved a hotel room in Emporia, Kansas.  About a month ago, I registered for the 2015 GBO.  About a week ago, I started my preparation. If you happen to live under a rock, the GBO (Glass Blown Open) is one of the biggest disc golf tournaments of the year. … Read more

Disc Golf Clinics Don’t Make You Better at Disc Golf

This week’s Wisdom Wednesday post, along with a recent post on Instagram by Will Shusterick really have me thinking.  As the weather gets crappier and crappier, disc golfers will spend more and more time inside instead of outside playing.  I’ll save you a very long rant about that one (put on … Read more

Life Can Be Cruel

One of life’s cruel tricks is that the tools and perspective you need to make the most of life often don’t come to you until well after you need them.  How many times have we said things like…  “If I could go back to high school knowing what I know now.” or “If I could go back to college knowing what I know now.” or “I wish I could go back and date that person again knowing what I know now.”  It seems like we are never fully equipped with the knowledge we need at the time we actually need it.

Disc Golf Up Shot Technique to Control Distance Accurately

“So can I play disc golf yet?” “Do you want to go back to not being able to walk?” “OK.  OK.  You know I have to ask.” “You’ll be able to play again someday, I promise.  For now let’s get to work.” For a little over a year, this was the conversation I had with my … Read more

It’s Up, It’s Good!!!

I had arrived at the local football field about 2 hours earlier.  Joining me that day was a bag full of 20 distance drivers.  I was on a mission.  I was not going home until either my arm fell off or I broke 360 feet.  I didn’t just want to break 360′ once, I wanted … Read more
